Rarely, growth involving the orbital apex can cause intra-orbital or intracanalicular optic nerve compression leading to permanent vision loss. Any sign of optic nerve compression is an indication for surgical resection. We report a case of compressive optic neuropathy secondary to craniofacial FD that was treated with combined endoscopic and trans-orbital resection as well as orbital wall and facial reconst...
